NPR political analyst Juan Williams discusses inside-the-beltway issues affecting African Americans with Ron Walters, a professor of political science at the University of Maryland and the author of eight books, including White Nationalism, Black Interests; and Tara Wall, director of outreach communications for the Republican National Committee. They discuss the impact of illegal immigration on employment possibilities; the president's social security proposals; and the potential for Republicans to take away the centuries-old option for minority-party filibusters.
